‘The Art Of Collaboration In Musical Theatre.’

‘The Art of Collaboration in Musical Theatre.’ The art of collaboration between individuals is of vital importance within the musical theatre genre. The different dynamics created between directors and actors, choreographer and chorus, songwriting team and book writer, and more, all work towards the ultimate goal of combining specific elements for musical presentations. This can also include; the audience, producers, board of directors, funders, technology, and the varied roles of the performers themselves as actors, singers and dancers. The conference aims to explore, uncover and create discussion through paper presentations, lecture demonstrations and practical workshops.

Paper topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • The collaborative process in producing, writing, rehearsal and performance
  • The development of the triple-threat performer
  • The praxis of collaboration
  • The use of technology to enhance collaboration
  • Teaching collaboration
